An adversary making a frontal attack can be anticipated or repulsed. An 
adversary attacking from within, however, cannot be so readily 
countered. This article presents findings of research that used a Delphi 
method to uncover flaws in traditional defenses against hostile insiders 
and point the way to new, counterintuitive defenses. The findings 
explain how infiltrators pose a greater threat than disgruntled 
insiders. Recommended defenses shape the contours of a No Dark Corners 
approach that applies and extends seminal theories of Newman's 
Defensible Space and Kelling's Fixing Broken Windows. No Dark Corners 
replaces a laser with a flashlight. The laser is a narrow beam of 
workplace monitoring only by corporate sentinels. The flashlight is a 
broader beam of employee engagement on the front lines, at the team 
level. There are no easy answers. No Dark Corners addresses gaps in 
traditional insider defenses to deliver the victory of ownership over 
surprise.
